Updating USB Host Controllers

Hi there.   I have a Sony Vaio laptop which I have recently breathed
new life into by loading XP
(SP 2).

The USB host controller is USB 1, which of course slows down all later
USB 2 devices.

Is there any way of updating the USB host controllers to USB 2 ?

Any info will be gratefully received.

Since the USB root controller is a part of South bridge (or whatever it is),
there is no way to
update the host controller.
However, you can get a PCMCIA USB2.0 adapter with 2 or 4 USB2 ports, and enjoy
faster speed.
